Paranoia-Rama: Conservatives Getting Persecuted, Schools Peer Pressuring Kids To Be Gay, Obama Taking Guns

Apparently, the most oppressed class in America today is conservative politicians, whom people are horribly persecuting by failing to promote their books or demand they run for president. It is even worse for the everyday right-wing activists, who seem to be living under constant threats of lynching.

Minuteman Project Leader Accuses Religious Groups Of Acting As 'Non-Violent Cartels' To Aid 'Covert Invasion'

In an interview with Newsmax today, Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist accused religious groups that support immigration reform and the humanitarian treatment of children at the southern border of being “non-violent cartels” who are aiding “the 21st century slave trade” and contributing to a “covert invasion” of the United States.

Gilchrist claimed that “criminal cartels and non-criminal cartels, the do-gooders and people who want to save everybody in the world on both sides of the border” are using child migrants as “human shields, not in the sense of warfare but in the sense of ideological warfare between foreign countries and the government of the United States, the people of the United States.”

When host John Bachman asked Gilchrist what he meant by “non-criminal cartels,” Gilchrist replied, “I would say the religious orders, and it’s not only the Catholic Church, and there are the Protestant church or whatever, it’s several religious orders, it’s several individuals who have banded together to allow this to happen, who want this to happen, for either religious reasons or political reasons or ideological reasons.”

Gilchrist is currently attempting to recruit thousands of volunteer militia members to patrol the southern border in a project he’s modestly calling “Operation Normandy,” a mission that Newsmax helped him to promote at the end of the interview.

The Doctor Is In: Dinesh D'Souza Psychoanalyzes The Left

Dinesh D'Souza spent an hour on Glenn Beck's radio program today promoting his new book and film "America: Imagine the World Without Her" while psychoanalyzing the Left by explaining that President Obama and the entire movement are motivated by nothing more than envy and a desire to destroy everyone who is better off.

"The primary emotion that drives the Left is the emotion of envy," D'Souza said, asserting that politicians like Obama succeed by convincing people that instead of bettering their own situations through education or hard work, the government will simply pull down those who have already succeeded and then redistribute some of that wealth to them.

"So here's the envious guy, seething with envy, seething with resentment and who should come to him at this point but Obama," he explained. "And Obama, himself suffused with envy, will say to this guy 'Listen, let me tell you something, you're not envious, you are righteously indignant, you know why? Because look at those guys in that restaurant, they've been stealing from you. Society creates wealth and then greedy entrepreneurs come in and grab it. So here's what you do: you vote for me, I will take the cops and go get their stuff and then I will give some of it to you.'"

"You have here a dirty bargain by people who are appealing to the lowest impulses in human nature," D'Souza said, "and it's camouflaged under the banner of social justice. It's ultimately the biggest scam of them all":

Rafael Cruz: Obama And Liberals Want To 'Do Away With The Bill Of Rights'

Rafael Cruz is pretty sure that President Obama and liberals would love to scrap the Bill of Rights in order to achieve their dream of creating a totalitarian, Marxist government and destroy religious freedom.

The conservative political activist and father of Sen. Ted Cruz told “Faith & Liberty” host Dave Garrison on Tuesday that President Obama and Fidel Castro are two peas in a pod, claiming that both leaders “operate by the same rulebook” in their supposed attempts to “embrace socialism,” “eliminate the concept of God” and “make the people serfs of the government.

“As a matter of fact, I think if the left had their way, they would do away with the whole Bill of Rights,” he said.

Cruz also warned on the same program that Obama is intent on seizing people’s guns in order to follow the Stalinist model of killing millions of people.

Garrison even gave us at Right Wing Watch a shout-out, which prompted Cruz to claim that we are “persecuting” him just as Jesus Christ was persecuted.

Ted Nugent Derides His Critics As Smelly, Dirty Communists Who Hate America

Ted Nugent is not pleased that a string of Native American tribes have cancelled his concerts, and visited “The Lars Larson Show” yesterday to claim that he is being persecuted for simply loving America too much and defeating all of his opponents in debates.

“I call them unclean varmints, I’ve actually gone by them and I mean it, they’re hygiene-challenged, they actually stink, they’re dirty people, they’re unclean, they’re bused in to Connecticut and New Jersey and different places to protest a Ted Nugent concert but, Lars, they are so stoned or just brain dead, they actually wear their American Communist Party regalia, they’re not smart enough to take off their identification that they’re not really protesters, they’ve been paid and bussed in.”

The tribes are facing pressure to cancel his concerts, Nugent explains, because they know he is “so good at getting across the self-evident truth that makes America the last best place, they know they can’t debate me, they know what I did to Piers Morgan and everybody who tries to debate me.”

He then lamented that his critics use “nasty, hateful” words against him, which we know Ted Nugent would never do.

Nugent then defended his relationship with Native American tribes, castigating his “haters” as “soulless, vicious, evil, rotten” people who “hate Ted Nugent, hate America and hate freedom.”

Rafael Cruz Predicts Obama Will Seize Guns Just As Stalin Did Before Killing Millions

Rafael Cruz, the father of Ted Cruz and a close adviser to the Texas senator, told the radio show “Faith & Liberty” on Tuesday that President Obama is committed to emulating Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong in seizing firearms in order to use them against the American people.

Cruz, who regularly preaches Christian Nationalist pseudo-history, said that Obama has a “worldview based upon a totalitarian view of government being all powerful,” and is bent on “destroying the exceptionalism of America” by ratifying the Law of the Seas Treaty.

After host Dave Garrison asked if “President Obama wants to take our guns as part of this worldview,” Cruz responded: “Well, of course, you have got to realize that is all about control. You look at history, Stalin took out the guns, then killed twenty million people; Mao took out the guns, then killed fifty million people. Every society where government has taken the guns away from the population, then they’ve used them against the population.”

He later said that Obama will “absolutely” be seen as the worst president ever in U.S. history.

Michele Bachmann: Children With Ebola And People From 'Terrorist Nations' Part Of Immigrant 'Invasion'

During her stop on Wednesday’s edition of “Faith & Liberty,” Rep. Michele Bachmann not only outlined her inflammatory anti-gay conspiracy theories and reasons why she supports impeaching President Obama, but also weighed in on the increase in unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border.

“People from Yemen, Iran, Iraq and other terrorist nations are making their way up through America’s southern border because they see that it’s a green light, they can easily get in,” the Minnesota Republican warned. “Not only people with potentially terrorist activities, but also very dangerous weapons are going to cross our border in addition to very dangerous drugs, and also life-threatening diseases, potentially including Ebola and other diseases like that.”

Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey, who like Bachmann has spoken out against vaccinations, also stoked fears about the completely bogus threat of Central American children carrying Ebola.

“This is madness,” she said.

Bachmann went on to claim that Obama is deliberately inviting child migrants into the country in order to establish a Democratic voting bloc, a theory also recently articulated by Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, and begin “transforming America into a Marxist economic model.”

“What he is doing by opening up this southern border, frankly, he is establishing a permanent political class that will vote for a big government mentality that will continually offer welfare decency programs,” she said, arguing that it is all part of a Saul Alinsky-inspired plot to bring communism to America.

The congresswoman argued that the House should move to defund the executive branch and impeach Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson over the “invasion” of child migrants, baselessly asserting that the children will bring diseases into the country and undermine the nation.

“We have this invasion because a political decision was made by our president to intentionally flaunt the laws of the land and put at risk the American people, our culture, our way of life, our economic standing, and also he’s willing to allow a pandemic of disease to come into our country,” she said.

New Anti-Choice Group Launches With Michael Peroutka Lecture On How Roe v. Wade Isn't Actually The Law

Last weekend, Iowa conservative talk show host Steve Deace held an event to launch Personhood Iowa, a new group he helped organize that is affiliated with the National Personhood Alliance, a new coalition of groups that seek to outlaw abortion in all cases along with banning common forms of birth control. 

In keeping with the group’s apparent mission to be so extreme that it will never attract any mainstream support, Deace invited Michael Peroutka, a regular guest on his radio show, to give an opening speech to Personhood Iowa activists.

Peroutka, in addition to running the far-right Institute on the Constitution and a successful debt-collection business that allowed him to buy a dinosaur for the Creation Museum, is now the GOP nominee for a seat on the Anne Arundel, Maryland, county council. Peroutka’s close ties with the neo-Confederate League of the South is causing hand-wringing in the state Republican party, with its gubernatorial nominee today disavowing Peroutka’s candidacy.

Peroutka — who recently declared that the Maryland General Assembly is no longer a valid legislative body because its passage of marriage equality violated “God’s law” — told the Iowa activists that everything from seat-belt mandates to the progressive income tax to Obamacare to Roe v. Wade are not valid laws because government only has the authority to uphold what he deems to be “organic law.” In fact, he said, all of these things are “pretended legislation,” a term used in the Declaration of Independence to refer to acts of Parliament governing the American colonies.

Peroutka also presented the audience with a contrast between what he sees as the “biblical worldview,” which he says is based on the idea of literal biblical creationism, and the “pagan worldview,” which he says is based on the theory of evolution.

The theory of evolution, he claimed, was responsible for the Columbine school shooting and the Holocaust, yet is still being taught through “the tragedy of public education.”

Peroutka has previously argued that it is impossible to be a patriotic American and also believe in evolution.
